Dutch Oven Cocotte
About this Item
This Dutch Oven, also known as a "cocotte" in France, is part of Revol's new line of Revolution cookware. It is made from a new proprietary material from Revol (patent pending in France) with novel composition and properties; is suitable for all types of heat source, including induction; and has higher thermal-shock and mechanical properties than any other type of non-porous culinary ceramic known today. Unlike some materials, Revol’s new material won’t deteriorate naturally with wear and tear (scratches, rust, ageing, etc.).
Capacity: holds 3.75 Quarts
Lid Colors: Black, White, Pepper Red, Yellow, Blue, Green, Orange.
• Completely nonporous ceramic, absorbs no fats, odours or bacteria.
• Made exclusively of natural components; contains no heavy metals (lead, cadmium) or fluorinated coatings (PTFE); emits no volatile organic compounds when heated. (Comparative analysis by the French Ceramics Association, Nov. 2010)
• Since there are no toxic components, Revolution is chemically inert and 100% recyclable.

There is no question why we love Revol products. It is a company that was founded in 1789 in Rhone Valley, France and is still operated by the same family for 11 generations - talk about family tradition!! Here’s how it all began:
A WALK WITH DESTINY... FROM EARTHENWARE TO PORCELAIN
On a Sunday walk after a series of violent storms, two brothers, Joseph-Marie and François Revol, noticed some unusual white streaks. For these specialists, there was no doubt they had found a deposit of kaolin. The region was already producing the red sandstone used by potters and tile makers. The Revol brothers' discovery led to the manufacture of much harder-wearing white stoneware and to the establishment of the REVOL factory in Ponsas, later transferred to Saint-Uze. There followed a succession of stoneware and “terre d'acier” pottery. A few years later, the REVOL factory developed a non-porous formula that could be enameled in various colors, which went on to become the benchmark of fine porcelain.
